The most notions of set idea (cardinals, ordinals, transfinite induction) are primary to all mathematicians, not just to those that specialise in mathematical good judgment or set-theoretic topology. easy set concept is mostly given a quick evaluate in classes on research, algebra, or topology, although it is adequately vital, attention-grabbing, and straightforward to advantage its personal leisurely remedy.

The Equivalence Theorem 1. In order to establish the equivalence of two finite sets M and N we try to map the elements of one set onto the other so that the elements are in one-to-one correspondence. If we succeed in making such a correspondence, we say the sets are equivalent, of the same power, and have the same cardinal number. We then write If, however, m comparing two infinite sets, it happens that M is equivalent to a subset N1 of N, but N is not equivalent to any subset M1 of M, we say that N is of greater power than M, that N has a greater cardinal number.

All the concepts and definitions of the theory of sets thus far discussed occur in the realm of finite setsâ€”and only such sets have been recognized up to this point. The results appear to be self-evident and say nothing new. It is only in the application of these concepts and operations to infinite sets that it becomes evident how extensive and all-embracing they really are. Exercises 1. Give several examples of equivalent sets, using instances in your immediate surroundings. 2. How many mappings of the set M = {a,b,c,d} on itself are possible?

That is: (a) M ~ M; each set is equivalent to itself. (b) If M ~ N, then N ~ M. (c) If M ~ N and N ~ P, then M ~ P. 7. The common property of all equivalent sets is their cardinal number, or their power, or their number of elements. We shall represent the cardinal number of a set by the corresponding small (lower case) letter of the alphabet or by placing the symbol representing the set between bars. Thus: If M = {a,b,c,d,e}, then |M| = | {a,b,c,d,e}| = m = 5; If N = {s,t,u,v,w}, then |N| = | {s,t,u,v,w}| = n = 5; n = m.
